A fairly loud pop & it pours reddish brown like a tea with a large coarse light tan head. Aroma is earthy sensed yeast, cherries, I was surprised by the sourness, slightly salty, followed by grain & subtle spices. Mild flavor yet interesting. Feels stronger that 8%. Feel is smooth & tangy.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a chalice. The appearance was a nice looking dark brown to hazy black color with a soft gentle rolling leveling half fingered white foamy head that dissipates at a nice pace. The lacing that is there speckles the sides nicely. The smell had a rich sort of dark chocolate to raisins and adds in a nice rich yeasty/breadiness to an herbal yet spicy complexity. The taste was spicy and sweet with a distinctive yeasty raisin-like quality hitting the taste buds. The aftertaste was sweet and spicy and lets a nice sharp spicy sweet finish. On the palate, it sits about a medium almost leaning closer to the heavier sort of side. The carbonation is good for the style which comes across not too harsh but just enough to make it feel good across my mouth and tongue. Overall, in my opinion, this was a wonderful offering from Unibroue.

Brown orange color. Nice aroma of malt , spice, and dried fruit.Taste identical to aroma with a bit if warmth from the alcohol. Despite higher abv and a bit of warmth it was really well hidden. Forms a huge head but carbonation was mild. Have had this many times and it is a great well made beer that is definitely worth trying

5/29/17 (Chicago, IL). 12 oz bottle poured into tulip. Cloudy copper brown pour, very generous white cloudy head. Spicy, bread, malt and yeast aroma. Taste included malt, bread, yeast, caramel, fruit and spices. Mild carbonation, feel smooth and creamy, good mouth feel and easy going down. Very good offering by Unibroue!

12 oz bottle poured to tall tulip. Hazy dark brown with a very tall, coarse, bubbly head. Aromas of yeast and spice. Taste is spice and brown sugar. Mouth feel is semi-dry, medium body, high carbonation. Overall, true to style and a well crafted double....I'm just not a big fan of spiced beers.

On tap at Das Biergarten. Hazy amber body. Smells bready, sweet caramel malts, strong and fruity yeast aromas. Tastes of bready, sweet malts, red apples, banana, spice, and a sharp yeasty back end. Medium bodied. Dry, so it doesn’t feel that heavy. Excellent, as always.

Beautiful brown, cloudy color with big head. Aroma of bread and spices. Flavors of bread, yeast, bits of chili and complex spices, a savory touch and a hint of chocolate. Plenty of carbonation to go around. Great creamy feel, medium thickness. Plenty of yeast at the bottom for a finishing prize. Fantastic beer.

It pours brown and with a creamy tan head of a seriously ridiculously long retention and amazing lacing. The aroma is of Belgian yeast and it's very fruity. Some mild notes of blueberry. Sweet and spicy and not boozy at all. There's a light bitterness at the end. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. This is one amazing beer.

From Saveur Biere. In La Trappe chalice. Watching Los Soprano 6x03. Caramel with a pleasant effervescence and a nice warming feeling. A good dubbel but not something amazing like their tripel
